Friendly & hospitable staff with flavorful local menu. We are quickly learning to only eat one or two courses as the portions are quite plentiful.

We spent 2 days (one evening) in Lucca and was recommended this by our B&B host as an established, local restaurant. Having looked at other options we plumped for Da Giulio - we were NOT disappointed.
Many locals were dining there and the superb choice and quality of food proved why that was.
The menu is typical, hearty, flavorsome Tuscan. Nothing else need be said.

A nice restaurant near the walls. The service was friendly and good. Great value for money. My husband and I paid 46 Euros for the following: starter of mixed cold meats, bruschette and the Tuscan liver paté. I then had "rosticciana", braised ribs, really nice and my husband enjoyed his baccalà and leeks. We had a litre of local wine and coffee to finish.

This is THE place to order farro, the local dish. I prefer the version with lentils, my husband the one with beans. Also the chicken "brick", i.e., mattone is delicious. We've been here many times over the years. After Giulio's death it wasn't so good, but the family bought it back, and now it's filled with the locals.

This is an excellent stop to make in the walled city of Lucca. Certainly a gem that is in one "corner" of the town that it could be missed. Homemade local soups (who knew farro could taste so good), wonderful main dishes (the Italian version of "Franks 'n Beans - meraviglioso!), and a great finish with properly prepared espresso to finish off the meal. There were a number of locals here and only ourselves and one other tourist couple.

A warning that not a lot of English is spoken but some of the staff knew a smattering of French and German. Get your basic phrases together and enjoy a wonderful Lucchese meal!
